The Member of Parliament for Asawase Constituency Alhaji Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak has questioned reasons for which Minister-designate for Energy will go and assume office at the Ministry while he is still waiting to be approved.
According to Alhaji Muntaka, he had received reports that the minister-designate even signed official documents as if already “sworn in”.
“Does that not make the vetting process like a rubber stamp?” the NDC MP asked.
He added that Mr Agyarko had ordered some items not to be removed from a warehouse.
However, responding to these accusations, Mr Agyarko said “I have not held myself anywhere as a substantive minister”.
He admitted that he sometimes goes to the Ministry to sit in the office of the Minister, but acted only on the instructions of the president, Nana Akufo-Addo.
He stated on the occasion of instructing workers from moving items of the Ministry from a warehouse, he only had a report but was unable to reach Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, the former Energy and Petroleum Minister, and John Jinapor, the former Deputy Power Minister.
